“The selections chosen for this program reference various
locations around the world, either directly or indirectly,” said Scott Tobias, director
of bands at WVU. “Audience members will enjoy the sounds of Irish folk music,
dance music from Southeastern Europe, and a composition inspired by the
gathering of an army in the Middle East during Biblical times.”
“Kirkpatrick Fanfare” by Andrew Boysen, Jr. starts the
program. The piece has an overarching Irish flare, including a strain of “Danny
Boy” and exciting brass sections.
